Historic Installation Dinner

The Milpitas Historical Society installed its new board of directors on February 17 at the Italian restaurant Giorgio in Milpitas. The dinner was the company’s first since the pandemic began two years ago.

Incoming Treasurer Joseph Ehardt received the Honorary Service Award from the Milpitas Historical Society and received a Certificate of Recognition from the California Legislative Assembly by the office of Assemblyman Alex Lee.

Besides Hare and Ehardt, the historical society leaders for 2022 are Vice President Catherine Pelizzari and Secretary Carolyn Tiernan.
